Media rooms: Small home theater ideas

by Hittner Group 11/16/2022

If you have unused space in your home, you might have the perfect opportunity for a small home theater. Ideas for home theater design often focus on larger rooms, but there’s no reason you can’t have a state of the art home theater room with less square footage.

Home theater sound options

Excellent sound quality is essential to a great home theater, and there are efficient options for small spaces, even when working with surround sound speakers. Mounted speakers on the walls save floor and surface space while also helping you pinpoint a perfect listening position.

For a simpler approach, try a sound bar style speaker. These devices can fit comfortably into most popular media displays and provide massive sound quality befitting an epic movie night.

Media screen sizes

Smart TVs are a favorite option for media rooms and home theaters, and they come in a variety of sizes to meet your space requirements. However, measure the dimensions of the room carefully before taking the plunge on a new large screen TV, as some models - particularly those with curved screens - can take up much more space than you’d expect.

Using vertical space

Attaching a flat screen TV to the wall is one great way to save space. Another option is to use a projection screen. Whether you choose a retractable screen or mount one on the wall permanently, their completely flat design will be the most efficient use of your home theater room.

These are only a few of the home theater ideas you can use for a small room. By choosing the right components to fit your space, you can transform even a tiny media room into the perfect home theater.
